F2W 174 - Who is fighting, betting odds, and how to watch?
Fight 2 Win is returning to Atlanta for F2W 174 following last week's F2W 173, which saw Kendall Reusing submit Talita Nogueira in the co-main event.
For this evening's main event, Lucas "Hulk" Barbosa and Aaron "Tex" Johnson will be taking the stage.
The first of Johnson's two F2W matches this year was against Arnaldo Maidana at F2W 161, followed by a loss against Max Gimenis at F2W 163. Barbosa, meanwhile, hasn't competed in F2W since 2020, when he had two consecutive victories - one over Roberto Jimenez and another over Rafael Lovato. The athletes have a long list of accomplishments between them, but this is the first time they will face each other.
Raquel Pa'aluhi Canuto will face Amanda "Tubby" Alequin in the co-main event. Canuto, a 2017 No-Gi World Champion, was impressive at SUG 23, performing well against Gillian Robertson. Last year, she defeated Gabi McComb with a rear naked choke in a superfight at Kasai Pro 7. She will still have her hands full with Alequin, who is the promotion's first female two-division champion. Alequin won the 135 lb no-gi title at F2W 162 by a ref's decision over Nathalie Ribeiro. Earlier this year, at F2W 171, she defeated Gabi McComb in a no-gi flyweight title match, winning the bout and the belt by split decision.
Richar Nogueira enters the fray in the third major match of the night following his triangle choke victory at F2W 173. Prior to Alequin vs. Canuto, Noguiera will face 2021 No-Gi Pans bronze medalist Orlando Castillo hailing from Fight Sports in Miami.
You will find plenty of great jiu-jitsu entertainment throughout the night, not just the main card match.
The F2W 174 event will be streamed live on FloGrappling on Friday, June 18.
